We stopped for lunch the second time this week. Wonderful food and wonderful service. Our waitress Pepsi was awesome and the chef Tanya checked on us twice. Wonderful place off the beaten path. Freddie was fun too.

We ate here a couple of years ago and it was excellent, so it was our first choice for a family dinner. It was still excellent, and we would return.

This very well maintained little gem was part of our food tour and even though we only had a taste we certainly liked what we found. We had a conch coconut curry chowder and it was excellent. The property is very well maintained which is not always the case in The Bahamas so it was refreshing. And it is always... More

They knew it was my husband's birthday we were coming to celebrate and had a birthday card waiting for him at our reserved table. Good night was had by all. We'll be... More

Van Breugal's is run "hands on" by the owner who makes a point of checking with his clientele about their experience! The food is first class, the atmosphere is excellent and the service is excellent. Prices are reasonable given all of the above.

Stopped here as part of our tour from Tru Bahamian Food Tours. We had the conk chowder which was delicious. We had the privilege to meet Freddy, the cook and owner. He took the time to welcome our group and sit and talk with us. He is a great guy and runs a great business. We will definitely make this... More

Great food and good service-if you get Pepsi as your server you are blessed. Don't miss the bratwurst, it is amazing and could eat the bread and seasoned butter all day.

We had delicious food, & a wonderful evening at Van Breugel's. Firstly, they served the best bread on the island. I had the lamb shank with mashed potatoes -fantastic! My husband had grilled mahi mahi which was delicious. The atmosphere was traditional and comfortable. We highly recommend this restaurant.
